    On Saturday, September 23rd, we will celebrate our annual Nyida Day of Harvest of Peace.  Nyida Days are family-oriented celebrations and occasions for local Shambhala communities to gather and practice, view a message from the Sakyong Wangmo, and enjoy food and each other’s company.  Come celebrate with us!  Families with children are very welcome to attend.  Supervised children’s activities will take place while parents practice.  An approximate schedule is listed below.

    The practice component of the day will start at noon with the Shambhala Sadhana which is a beautiful practice with meditation, mantra, and visualization. This practice takes about an hour and the potluck lunch will be embedded at the end of Shambhala Sadhana.  After the Shambhala Sadhana, we will view the Sakyong Wangmo’s address. We then will have a community discussion around the topic of Creating Enlightened Society.

    As our potluck lunch will be part of the Shambhala Sadhana, please feel free to bring a dish to share. Help us celebrate the season where the harvest brings abundance.
